TERMITE REMOVALDrywood termites infest dry and decayed wood. This can include structural lumber (houses, buildings etc.), dead limbs of trees, wood fences, and are elongated in shape, and vary in color depending upon the type and color of the wood.
Many times they are referred to as being salt and pepper like unused lumber in storage. Termites commonly spread to other structures on hot sunny low humidity types of days in the summer/fall. Drywood termites can live in warm, dry conditions for long periods of time. They are typically found in the attic and eaves so that they can be in warm areas during the winter and a little cooler area during the hot summer. Termite droppings are one of the first signs of infestation.
We recommend a through and complete inspection before treatments are performed. Treatment recommendations include local treatments and full house fumigation. Also we offer TimBore as a preventative treatment against Drywood Termites in the attic, garage and substructure areas.GET QUOTE
